What to Enjoy At Fan Expo Canada 2022?

There are so many ways to celebrate the fandoms you enjoy: meeting and getting autographs/photographs with the hottest celebrities, discussing spicy topics at celebrity panels and Q&As, shopping for that missing Fortnite x Batman issue you have been dying to get, visiting community meetups, meeting legendary comic creators and attending a workshop to level up your cosplay skills.

Gamers can participate or watch the Magic: The Gathering Open and Pokémon Open. The Bell Canada Esports Challenge Finals will also be taking place August 26-28 at the convention (and livestreamed on Bell’s official Twitch channel). It will be hosting games in special formats such as Valorant 5v5, Rocket League 3v3 and Call of Duty 4v4.

Fans are also highly encouraged to check out The Masquerade Ball for some masked (for your eyes) dancing, giveaways and dressing up in cosplay or Ball attire and of course, you can live out all your cosplay dreams through the convention hall. Buffer Festival is another great event that takes place alongside Fan Expo where the very best in Canadian and international content creators gather to meet fans and show off their latest work and sneak peeks at upcoming projects. There will always be something to do for everyone!
